Re: [RC] Howmuch Epsom Salt - Don Huston

Thank You Katrina,

So the answer to my 77% question is "Oxygen" with a tiny amount of impurities. Is that correct?

And a 1oz scoop (28g +/-) would provide 2.8grams of Mg and 3.6grams of S. Is that correct?

Hello Carla,

Thanks for the link, it was an informative read.

Epsom Salts is a powder, not liquid and (9.8%Mg 12.9%S). So what is the other 77% of the powder?

I wouldn't use it.  Too easy to use too much, resulting in diarrhea.  Most horses are going to get sufficient Mg in their forage. 
 
The other 50 to 77% is water.

Howmuch is a safe dose?
What is the other 77% in Epsom Salt?
